Bio Sketch

Dynamic, enthusiastic, and inspiring -- Caleb Rosado is a highly motivated speaker and trainer who is comfortable addressing audiences of ten or ten thousand. A bilingual, bicultural Puerto Rican, Dr. Caleb Rosado yearly keynotes conferences and conducts training workshops for a wide variety of audiences as diverse as: corporate executives, colleges, local, state and national government agencies, teacher in-service sessions, community organizations and church ministerial and lay groups. He is a vision-maker who gives his audiences a sense of where society is headed as it rapidly approaches the twenty-first century. He energetically shows people how they can be proactive change agents rather than reactive retreaters.

"We live in a rapidly changing world," Rosado declares, "with change as the one constant social force. During this great time of social and cultural upheaval, people need to know how they can become knowledgeable players in the game of social change, instead of confused bystanders wondering what is happening." His question for educators is: "Do we dam up the ocean, or do we teach our children how to swim?"

Dr. Caleb Rosado is a sociologist, an educator, a consultant, a futurist, and a visionary with a Ph.D. degree from Northwestern University, who professionally specializes in education, diversity, multiculturalism, race and ethnic relations, social change, and religion. He has studied religion and social change in revolutionary Cuba, refugee life in internment camps in Thailand, street life in England, cultural life in Spain. His expertise in multiculturalism, diversity, religion, bilingual-bicultural and multicultural education, makes him a frequent flyer to diverse conference centers throughout the country and abroad, as he shows corporate leaders, educators, government personnel and clergy how to manage and celebrate diversity in the workplace, in the classroom, and in the church. Some of his clients have been IBM, AT&T, Georgetown University, Rutgers University, Inroads, Inc., the California Department of Education, the California Continuation Education Association, Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, and the United States Departments of Energy, Defense, Health, Human Services, & Postal Service and Department of Defense Dependents Schools in Japan.

A published author, Dr. Rosado has written three books on racism, sexism and God, as well as numerous articles published in various professional journals. He is a frequent speaker on talk shows because of his writings on key issues such as diversity, affirmative action, racism, violence and cult groups.
